Alternative Seating for Young Children: Effects on Critical Early Literacy Skills
Merritt, Jill M.
ProQuest LLC, D.Ed. Dissertation, Capella University
Classroom teachers frequently use movement and sensory integration to assist their students' learning but little research exists to support its use. Although research is limited, it suggests that the use of alternative seating may provide students with an opportunity to move just enough therefore assisting children in learning more effectively. This study examined the relationship between an alternative seating device and children's scores on the "Get it, Got it, Go Assessment" (Ohio Department of Education, 2008). It was hypothesized that there would be a significant difference in the intervention groups' "Get it, Got it, Go Assessment" scores compared to the non-intervention groups scores at the end of six weeks. The current research provides insight into the role of sensory integration and how students pay attention to learn. The current research may potentially add to the current literature on sensory integration and learning. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
